Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will be buried in the country's National Heroes Acre monument as a spat over his final resting place is settled between Zimbabwe government and Mugabe's family.


The family, who said in a statement that the government did not initially consult them on burial plans, had previously insisted the former president would be laid to rest in his hometown of Kutama, west of the capital city, Harare.

A memorial will be held on Saturday, he will then be given a ceremonial send-off at Harare's National Heroes Acre monument on Sunday, but his funeral will be held there as a private affair at a later, undisclosed date, the younger Mugabe told CNN on Friday.

"Burial will be done later at the National Heroes Acre. So when the rituals are done the family will do a private burial at the National Heroes Acre," Leo Mugabe said.
Mugabe's family had been at loggerheads with the current President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa over where Robert Mugabe's funeral should take place.
They wanted to bury him in his home town while the government insisted on the burial at the hilltop monument where the country's national heroes are laid to rest.
